Sean Hannity scores first TV interview with Roseanne Barr since ABC firing

Roseanne Barr is back, and this time it’ll be live.

On Tuesday, Sean Hannity announced that the controversial comedian will join him for an interview today, marking Barr’s first broadcast appearance since the cancellation of her ABC series.

Barr was fired from the revival of her hit TV show, “Roseanne,” in May shortly after a racist tweet comparing former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to an ape.

The actress has repeatedly denied that she is a racist, including a recent video in which she defended her comments about Jarrett because “I thought the … was whiiiiiite!”

A statement from Fox News regarding the live interview stated that during the sit-down, Barr will “react to reports about the tweet that got her fired along with discussion of President Donald Trump.”

Barr’s appearance on “Hannity” will air at 8 p.m. today.
